Commercial Carpet Cleaning
A commercial carpet beginning to show signs of wear.
Routine carpet cleaning is important to commercial buildings because carpets act as a filter, trapping dirt, dust animal hair, and basically anything you walk on outside the building. Manufactures suggest the following:
- If you have a spill attend to the stain as soon as possible because the longer the stain stands the harder it will be to remove later
- Buying a good vacuum and vacuum regularly so the soils don’t build-up
- Maintenance carpet cleaning in light soil rating = 1-2 times annually, medium soil rating = 6-12 times annually and heavy soil rating = 12-52 times annually
Clean carpets also allow for a healthier work environment, maintain the value of the property and send a message to your clients/customers that you take pride in your company and that shows them you will do the same for them. If you would like to set up a carpet cleaning maintenance schedule please call us.
Sewage Clean Up Services

Sewage leaks in your home or business can happen for a variety of reasons. I found out the hard way that when a toddler flushes a plastic hammer down the toilet it may get past the toilet itself but can get lodged in the pipe further down the system causing a block. This blockage caused a bathtub full of water to come shooting up through the first-floor toilet (lowest point) when it could not exit my home just as Superstorm Sandy was hitting.
All sewage leaks should be considered extremely hazardous to your health. Besides the obvious foul smell and disgusting nature of the material, sewage can harbor a variety of harmful bacteria that can cause illness for but humans and pets.
At SERVPRO, our technicians are trained to deal with these incidents and have the proper equipment to do it safely. Depending on the type of material that is contaminated a variety of equipment and techniques may be used. For example, soft porous material will need to be extracted to remove the contamination prior to sanitization. This is far more complicated than a tile or linoleum floor.
When (not if) you have a sewage mess, call the experts at SERVPRO!
